    So as i have said on here somewhere before, i have have been saving for a S3 for ages now, and now i have the money my wife has told me i need a new house more than i need an S3 ? so the S3 will have to wait, the 58" black 140 sport sportback is getting a makeover , the car is box standard and i have got me some new bit's to fit so i will post some pictures soon of the old girl as is and as the mod's go on, parts so far waiting to fit are OEM privacy glass , S3 rear bumper , 19 bbs speedlines , and coilovers (yet to buy) but
    the car is black and all styling roads tend to lead to murdering it , but i'm not sure that's what i want to do, so the future is undecided and the rest i'll make up as i go, i'm hoping that some inspriation comes from edition this year so watch this thread .

    yeah, i wish i could afford 16mpg:D, 1500 for insurance and overall steep running costs this thristy bugger. Thing was I took her to the Audi garage the other day to show her our next car which supposed to be S3 but then she spotted nice S5 with all this black alloys, black pearl paint, etc. You can easily work out what happened next:]. Lovely car must say though.

    I don't want to alarm you but there appears to be a transformer hiding in your boot.

    known issue with the S3 bumper, i think you can re-align them so it levels up properly... maybe something a garage can do for you?
